FACULTY The faculty for the Summer Session will be composed primarily of the regular members of the Shaw University faculty, together with additional specialists in the field of education. LIBRARY A well-equipped and attractive library, consisting of approximately 19,000 books, is located in Tyler Hall. It is supervised by a competent librarian who aids the students in their reference work and guides them in their general reading. Magazines and daily and weekly newspapers provide means for the information of students on current events. It is the aim of the Administration to make the library a place of great use- fulness in the education of the students in technical knowledge and general culture.

The workshop-seminar is designed to give its members an opportunity to clarify their thinking on problems of educational philosophy, and to give them assistance in defining educational objec- tives. Each member will be given a chance to work on problems which are encountered in his particular school situation. Those who bring similar problems will be encouraged to work in small, informal groups. In addition, they will have easy access to the services of a group of sympathetic and competent workshop specialists. Those who attend will be given credit for six semester hours. These hours will fulfill the state's requirement for certificate renewal, and, at the same time, will satisfy a requirement in reading or methods for those who may be changing a high school certificate to a primary or grammar grade A. Those interested in the development of reading programs for their schools will be given opportunities to work in this area. Members of our staff, persons from the State Department of Public Instruction, and competent workshop consultants from colleges and universities in this section will be available for special assistance. Begistration for workshop will begin June 8. Special fee of $6.00 in addition to regular charges. For further information, please feel free to communicate with the Director of Summer School.
